Just to confirm:
https://www.asus.com/zentalk/thread-225636-1-3.html

I think it's time to test some XDA ROMs. There are some ROMs already based on AndroidPie available for the ZE520KL / ZE552KL such as LineageOS 16.0 and PixelExperiment 9.0
Since the way things are going on here by ASUS, this is going to be the only way to keep our smartphones updated from now on.

If you want to take a look, the link below will take you to the XDA Developer website, where ROMs are available for download.

Hi furkan_aglar
    Good day, now the latest version of ZF3 is Android 8.0. In order to preserve system stability and compatibilty. We will keep in current version.
Thank you for using Asus

Okay  
Zenfone 3 Max received the 8.1 update but the flagship Zenfone 3 will not receive it... This is so unfair. I think this is very wrong decision.
At least give the ZenUI 5.0 update, please.

Because spec wise (not including the display), if they will release thr 8.1 and zenui5 to 552kl, there is no point of upgrading to zen5.


IMHO ze552kl is almost the same as the zen5 base model except for that AI and notched display
